    Andrew MyersI am very sorry that my comment was taken to mean that eihetr one of you had denied Christ and the concern it must have caused you. It was meant in reference to the scenario put forth in the original post. Specifically, the part about Jesus stating, Now a situation arises at this Fellowship event where the one person is promoting his belief system, in a sincere and positive manner, and it just so happens it is regarding an issue that he is not in agreement with the beliefs contained in the Urantia Book and the other 11 leaders personal beliefs. For some reason, he/she doesne28099t believe that Jesus is the Son of God and the story of his life is a metaphor. He/she preaches the realization of the fruits of the spirit, the Fatherhood of God, brotherhood of man, service to onee28099s fellows, and ritual worship via speaking in tongues. I hope this clarifies my point. As for the belittlement of the divine, I was referring to what I assume is the cause of all but the relatively minor disagreements that people in our community have with the book and causes them to think of the book in terms of percentage points of correctness. That being the idea that one somehow, has more wisdom and better knowledge than a Universal Censor or a Divine Minister. Or is it perhaps they think the book is just a very well channeled work or even the work of shrewd and deceptive men? In a follow up post it was stated You mention an obstacle related to the study of the UB. There are some who believe it to be an epochal revelation and others who think it to be an Epochal revelation (The E being capitalized because it is absolute). You voice concern of uniting these different sets of individuals under the common purpose of study. Unfortunately, this is the devicive root of many sects (religious or otherwise). People historically prefer to be surrounded by like minds rather than like hearts, and that is the crux of the issue. We can ask about the logisitics of a study group for those who have like minds (90-100% UB), how do we create that?e2809d I wanted to make it clear that my heart is not, in fact like theirs, other than the way all hearts are, of course. I know from some personal experience how hard it is to share in ones religious journey with those that chose to believe in reincarnation, for instance. I know it would be easier for me to make progress in my quest to find God in a Christian church than in a group that, despite saying it was about the Book, allowed in all sorts of new age and occult ideologies. I would also like to say how much I appreciated Geoff’s article and thought it showed keen insight. It was great to finally see an intellectual understanding of policies put fourth by certain segments of our community. I think it is very important to have these discussions now that the issue of co-operation with cults and further acceptance of occult elements and mental dissociation (100:5.9) ( channeling ) is being brought up in the community. With respect, Andrew

    I had a rather hard time chisoong just one type of physician I would want to work for. So many of them fascinate me, and with me not really going into any medical field other than support, I never gave this any thought in the past. After reading the list, I am more favorable of working for a neonatologist. It is difficult to think about how neonatologist physicians sometimes have the most difficult job in the world, but I can only imagine how amazing it would be to be a part of saving a baby’s life. I had a coworker once whose baby was born at 36 weeks, and her baby had a lot of heart and lung problems. There were concerns about whether or not they would ever fully develop once she had him, but after many months in the NICU, and many scares that happened during it, the doctors were able to save him and he is now a very healthy 5 year old. It is because of that I have a higher interest in the neonatologist field.I hate to say which type of physician I would care less to work for, and it is because I worry that many will take it the wrong way. When I was 16, I used to help my mom at an assisted living home as a caregiver. We would get to work at 7:00 A.M. every morning to prepare breakfast for four of the elderly men and women that we were caring for. We would then make sure that all bedding was changed, rooms were cleaned, meals were prepared, and appointments were handled. We worked 12 hour days, and they were always grueling. The owner of the home made sure that everyone had their medicine and made it to their doctor appointments on time. However, she was more worried about getting paid for her services than actually helping the elderly. She would yell at them if they did something wrong, and even call them terrible names. My mom reported her and we both quit our job, but it has always left a sting in my heart since then. It is because of my experience with that situation that I do not think I could ever work for a gerontologist. I know that the situations would be much different, but ever since my experience with caring for elderly individuals it is very hard for me to think about assisting a physician in geriatrics because I worry that someone else might treat the elderly in the same way the owner of the home did. I am a firm believer that the elderly deserve the ultimate care and comfort when going through any treatment and aging in general, but I do not think I could ever work in that environment again.

    e2809cBehold, I stand at the door and knock, and if any man will open, I will come in.e2809d(1765.5) 159:3.3 In bringing men into the kgidnom, do not lessen or destroy their self-respect. While overmuch self-respect may destroy proper humility and end in pride, conceit, and arrogance, the loss of self-respect often ends in paralysis of the will. It is the purpose of this gospel to restore self-respect to those who have lost it and to restrain it in those who have it. Make not the mistake of only condemning the wrongs in the lives of your pupils; remember also to accord generous recognition for the most praiseworthy things in their lives. Forget not that I will stop at nothing to restore self-respect to those who have lost it, and who really desire to regain it.(1765.6) 159:3.4 Take care that you do not wound the self-respect of timid and fearful souls. Do not indulge in sarcasm at the expense of my simple-minded brethren. Be not cynical with my fear-ridden children. Idleness is destructive of self-respect; therefore, admonish your brethren ever to keep busy at their chosen tasks, and put forth every effort to secure work for those who find themselves without employment.(1766.1) 159:3.5 Never be guilty of such unworthy tactics as endeavoring to frighten men and women into the kgidnom. A loving father does not frighten his children into yielding obedience to his just requirements.(1766.2) 159:3.6 Sometime the children of the kgidnom will realize that strong feelings of emotion are not equivalent to the leadings of the divine spirit. To be strongly and strangely impressed to do something or to go to a certain place, does not necessarily mean that such impulses are the leadings of the indwelling spirit.(1766.3) 159:3.7 Forewarn all believers regarding the fringe of conflict which must be traversed by all who pass from the life as it is lived in the flesh to the higher life as it is lived in the spirit. To those who live quite wholly within either realm, there is little conflict or confusion, but all are doomed to experience more or less uncertainty during the times of transition between the two levels of living. In entering the kgidnom, you cannot escape its responsibilities or avoid its obligations, but remember: The gospel yoke is easy and the burden of truth is light.(1766.4) 159:3.8 The world is filled with hungry souls who famish in the very presence of the bread of life; men die searching for the very God who lives within them. Men seek for the treasures of the kgidnom with yearning hearts and weary feet when they are all within the immediate grasp of living faith. Faith is to religion what sails are to a ship; it is an addition of power, not an added burden of life. There is but one struggle for those who enter the kgidnom, and that is to fight the good fight of faith. The believer has only one battle, and that is against doubt e28094 unbelief.(1766.5) 159:3.9 In preaching the gospel of the kgidnom, you are simply teaching friendship with God. And this fellowship will appeal alike to men and women in that both will find that which most truly satisfies their characteristic longings and ideals. Tell my children that I am not only tender of their feelings and patient with their frailties, but that I am also ruthless with sin and intolerant of iniquity. I am indeed meek and humble in the presence of my Father, but I am equally and relentlessly inexorable where there is deliberate evil-doing and sinful rebellion against the will of my Father in heaven. *(1766.6) 159:3.10 You shall not portray your teacher as a man of sorrows. Future generations shall know also the radiance of our joy, the buoyance of our good will, and the inspiration of our good humor. We proclaim a message of good news which is infectious in its transforming power. Our religion is throbbing with new life and new meanings. Those who accept this teaching are filled with joy and in their hearts are constrained to rejoice evermore. Increasing happiness is always the experience of all who are certain about God.(1766.7) 159:3.11 Teach all believers to avoid leaning upon the insecure props of false sympathy. You cannot develop strong characters out of the indulgence of self-pity; honestly endeavor to avoid the deceptive influence of mere fellowship in misery. Extend sympathy to the brave and courageous while you withhold overmuch pity from those cowardly souls who only halfheartedly stand up before the trials of living. Offer not consolation to those who lie down before their troubles without a struggle. Sympathize not with your fellows merely that they may sympathize with you in return.(1766.8) 159:3.12 When my children once become self-conscious of the assurance of the divine presence, such a faith will expand the mind, ennoble the soul, reinforce the personality, augment the happiness, deepen the spirit perception, and enhance the power to love and be loved.(1767.1) 159:3.13 Teach all believers that those who enter the kgidnom are not thereby rendered immune to the accidents of time or to the ordinary catastrophes of nature. Believing the gospel will not prevent getting into trouble, but it will insure that you shall be unafraid when trouble does overtake you. If you dare to believe in me and wholeheartedly proceed to follow after me, you shall most certainly by so doing enter upon the sure pathway to trouble. I do not promise to deliver you from the waters of adversity, but I do promise to go with you through all of them. As Always, PEACE, LOVE, and BLESSINGS, Miranda
